Offer on my house. Happy that I can move on. I know this is my new beginning and the right and only road I should be traveling on...But I brought my babies home here. I lived here for almost half of my life.

I am relieved, devastated, sad and crying. This has not happened in a long time. Shocked by my reaction. Just when you think you have recovered some errant emotion takes a brick and hits you upside your head.

I felt similar about the marital house I left 10 mo ago.
Ft and I met there, married in the backyard,raised his son and my daughter there, and brought two of our grandsons there after their births. So much history in 30 yrs. It was fitting we divorced while we still lived there.

I will say I couldn't have moved forward if I remained there.
Hugs the memories will alway be special and now you will create new ones in your new home.
Big Hugs !!!!!

It's something that hit me too - especially the last time I left the house after moving out.

It was our marital home for 9 years - which is not as long as you had but it still hit me.

I agree with gma - it's hard but it's an important step in moving forward. But it is yet another loss to mourn as you do so. (( Hugs))

I know I will be experiencing the same thing when I leave this house at the end of next year.

This house was the first one during our entire marriage that we were in longer than 4 years (due to job promotions and relocations). I finally have the kitchen of my dreams...

But you know what, even though I know I will grieve, I am actually looking forward to those after feelings of peace and letting go.

You will soon be feeling this too. Congratulations on the offer and cheers to your moving forward!

Been there, done that, it's very tough. Big hugs, you'll get through this and move on.

It's ok to be sad about this. It's ok to grieve, even for a house.

I wasn't in my marital home as long as you, but I felt the same way when we foreclosed. There were so many dreams and plans that never happened.

FWIW, I've lived in many places as I followed my WH around for his career. There was sadness each time I left one of those places for the last time, even when we were moving someplace exciting. It's the closing of a chapter. It's sad even without all the bad things going on in our lives. I think the sad ending likely makes it a bit worse though. I guess I'll find out when I sell the house we own now. The last house we will ever live in together in a 27 year marriage.
